So here is the thing,im not as rich as most people here with mkIII and L lenses so.I've got my Canon 600D,Sigma 18-50 F2.8 EX DC and Canon 70-210 F4 lens.

I dont do much of portraits and such,its more sport events for my friends to post pictures over social net,yet the quality of these photos is not as good as id want them to be to find a job as a photography reporter atleast.

Am i good to go with the flickr links here? https://www.flickr.com​/photos/capfiyah/ (external link) here is some examples of what i have done with the photos i made.any latest pictures has their original RAW file on my computer just in case anyone is ineterested in checking it out later.

lets talk about this one https://www.flickr.com​/photos/capfiyah/14368​487734/ (external link) .made from around 50 i believe with that old film 70-210 lens at 210 mm and f8. Does it looks good at all or is there is a problem either with the quality itself or maybe post process so the sky looks like a bunch of blue and white dots mixed?

I'm not even sure if i wrote everything correct so people could understand it,im from Russia and i wasn't really into learning english in some special classes and stuff.Just chat over internet.Thank you for your attention.Cya

Hmm, your pics seem to be some out-of-focus and some in-focus..are your lenses auto-focusing?

Well, if you're going into sports, you're going into "specialty" lenses -- consider the Canon f/1.8?

50mm one?I used it for a while but i had to exchange it for 18-50 sigma for wider angle =\ not gonna buy anything till i get enought for L lens

as for 50mm,sometimes you cant move cause of the crowd behind/in front (depends on if u are invited as a photographer or not) so i went zoom lenses

Ah, sorry, I meant the Canon 85mm f/1.8, an affordable lens with a great reputation for sports!

As to a zoom, well, my go-to lens for sports stuff was the EF 70-200 f/2.8 IS, an "L" lens, expensive, but world-class for action shooting!

So, from a quick look, most look like snap shots from eye level. A lot of sports photos are at the extreme (extremely tight or extremely wide). Obviously there are middle grounds but to do this as a reporter (for sports) you're going to need to compete with everyone else. This requires an investment. I know you said you didn't have the funds, but that's the nature of sports.

Luckily for skateboarding you can use wide angles. But try to get on to the top of the ramp and get wide shots of them in the air right in front of your face.
